Braces and Invisalign work for anyone. There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. While it is customary to hear about kids’ and teens’ experiences with braces, adult braces are equally common. SmilesRForever dentists have treated preteens to seniors.
Teeth can begin to move at any age. Even if you have healthy teeth and gums, shifting can occur due to injuries or other health conditions. Even normal growth can cause a change in your bite and alignment.
Why consider adult braces or Invisalign?
A straight smile is a confidence booster! You’ll feel great about taking photos and showing off your smile in public. There’s more to it than that, however. Crooked teeth can make some surfaces hard to reach with a toothbrush, floss, and mouthwash. Once the teeth have been straightened, it is very easy to give each tooth and your gums a thorough cleaning.
How long will I wear braces or Invisalign?
Each person’s orthodontic experience can be different. Those with mild alignment issues may take mere months to achieve a desired result. More complex problems can take upwards of two years. This goes for patients both young and old. We are happy to discuss your unique needs with you in a consultation to be sure you’re properly informed, to achieve the results you want.
Can you work around my existing dental work?
Fortunately, in most cases, we are able to work around bridges, implants, and even crowns. We’ll meet with you to see exactly what is possible. We want your braces experience to be a smooth one.
People everywhere are living longer than ever before, so don’t hesitate when it comes to adult braces. You deserve a better smile for the rest of your long life. Contact SmilesRForever Dentistry for your free consultation and see what braces or Invisalign options are right for you as an adult!
